State forest rangers say they had to rescue two men who started a nearly 40-mile hike in the Adirondack High Peaks while improperly clothed for the below-freezing conditions and carrying only two bagels and one canteen of water.

Rangers tell the Adirondack Daily Enterprise that 22-year-old Stephen Hine of Philadelphia and 26-year-old Kyle Austin of Syracuse set out at 1 a.m. Sunday from Long Lake in Hamilton County, intending to hike a 38-mile trail to Lake Placid.

The wife of one of the men called authorities late Sunday night to report they were overdue. Rangers found the men around 12:30 p.m. Monday off the trail in southeastern Franklin county.

Rangers say both men had low body core temperatures. They were treated at a hospital and released.
